The Rev. Weezie Blanchard is pleased to announce that The Rev. Andrew Y. Moore will join the staff of St. Mary’s as Associate Rector beginning February 14. Andrew has served as Curate at Christ Church in Greenwich, Connecticut since 2015, where his ministry has focused on helping parishioners engage more deeply in mission, their own spirituality, and in the life of the parish. At St. Mary’s, Andrew will work closely with Weezie and Bob Hetherington as he continues his work in those and all other areas. “Andrew brings many gifts to St. Mary’s. He is a ‘people person’ and a talented preacher and teacher whose experience in the Episcopal Church and beyond will serve us well,” says Weezie. Parishioners and staff members who met with Andrew when he visited St. Mary’s in December focused especially on how well Andrew and his gifts and experience meet the needs of St. Mary’s. An Indiana native, Andrew is a graduate of Berkeley Divinity School at Yale University. Prior to attending Berkeley, he served as Director of Youth & Family Ministry at Calvary Episcopal Church in Memphis, Tennessee. We are delighted to welcome Andrew to St. Mary’s.

Wednesdays in December, St. Mary’s will offer Evening Prayer: Rite II at 5:45 p.m.in Little St. Mary’s. This simple, contemplative service is a wonderful way to be drawn further into the spirit of the season as we anticipate the light and hope Christ brings to the world. Services begin December 2.
